Watch the trailer for VICE's Special Report on Prisons: 'Fixing The System'
Last July, Barack Obama became the first sitting president to visit a federal prison. He invited VICE along to film the historic event for part of our new documentary, Fixing the System, which investigates America's broken criminal justice system.
The documentary debuted Sunday night on HBO, but since our flawed prison system is one of the most pressing civil rights issues in America and we know not all of you have gotten around to buying HBO Go, we'll be streaming it online for the next few weeks so everyone can watch.
Along with the trip to an Oklahoma federal prison with Obama, Fixing the System takes an in-depth look at all the interlocking pieces of the complicated criminal justice system, from prisoners and their families to the judiciary and community reformers.
Check out the the full-length documentary on HBO.
